Disco Shoes

By far the most ingenious footwear collection showcased at London Collections: Men SS15, master cobbler Nicholas Kirkwood put on a show worthy of any new-age Seventies nightspot. 

Featuring a range of ultra-modern lace-ups, boots, sandals and trainers lit by pulsating disco lights, the SS15 line incorporated metallic foil treatments, bold-tone patent leathers and technical athletic fabrics.

Casting a mood of futurist psychedelia, Kirkwood’s dynamic collection had a mesmerising effect on every shoe aficionado in sight.
